The program manager for the roadside assistance service wants to provide users with an option to enroll when requesting service rather than automatically rejecting unenrolled users. Configure the Approval Rejection process to update the membership status of a customer record if the customer decides to enroll in the roadside assistance program. Create a data transform to copy the updated membership status and coverage level to the customer record. Then, add the data transform and a Save data page step to the Approval Rejection process to update the customer record in the database.
